Festival Holidays and Tours.
As Seen in…
Why go on Festival Holidays?
It is all about the experience. That is the essence of an Undiscovered Destinations small group tour. When this is combined with one of our festival holidays then that experience is multiplied numerous times.
There can be no other feeling in the world than watching as the voodoo drum beats intensify, the smoke from the fires billows and stings your eyes and then the half naked dancer starts writhing and pulsating as he enters a deep voodoo trance! Our voodoo festival tour in Benin may not be for everyone but it highlights the depth of experience that can be found on this type of tour.
The Mongolian Nadaam Festival is a great example of how Undiscovered Destinations design and run our festival group tours. Our tour does not focus on the events happening in and around the capital, Ulaan Baatar but looks at how the local people further out in the plains celebrate. The capital city has become a magnate for tourists and many of the events are staged just for the benefit of tourists. We do not believe in this style of tourism and make a conscious effort to search for authenticity.
That is why you may see that many of our festival holidays and tours are not the same year after year. We keep moving and trying to show a different side to each festival, making sure that the experience you get is the genuine one.
